Dejected MS Dhoni leaves without shaking hands with players

Legendary CSK player MS Dhoni left the pitch early after CSK's loss against RCB on Saturday, May 18. CSK were knocked out of the Indian Premier League after their 27-run loss against the Bengaluru side. After the conclusion of the match, MS Dhoni opted not to shake hands with the RCB team, which shocked the fans, who were watching the game at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Dhoni, who was expected to call time on his career after CSK's loss in their final group-stage game was angry with himself. Dhoni got out in the second ball of the final over, just after hitting a 110m six against Yash Dayal. Dhoni, who was batting at 25 off just 12 balls, got caught at deep square leg after he top-edged a slower delivery from the RCB pacer. After CSK's loss, Dhoni walked up to the front of the line, where the CSK players were getting ready to shake hands with the RCB players. However, upon seeing that RCB players were busy celebrating, he decided to walk back instead. On his way back into the dressing room, Dhoni shook hands with only the RCB staff and left the ground.

The RCB vs CSK turned out to be a memorable encounter in the IPL 2024 season. CSK needed just 17 to qualify for the playoffs in the final over, even if that came at the cost of losing the game, with the target being 35 from the final 6 balls. However, the trio of MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja and Shardul Thakur, who batted the 6 balls failed to hit Yash Dayal for boundaries. Dayal gave away just 7 runs in the final over and clinched an incredible win for the RCB side. With the win, RCB qualified for the IPL playoffs with 14 points to their name.
